It was on August 10, when he had a heart attack. Post 41 days of hospitalisation he passed away. Raju Srivastav’s good friend Sunil Pal was the one who kept giving health updates related to the comedian.
A while ago, he posted a video upon listening to Raju Srivastav’s tragic demise. In the clip, he said that he came to know about his sad news and he is not being able to trust the same. He wished this day did not come. For 40 days he was fighting a battle and everyone was praying for a miracle. This is the saddest day. How to believe this? “Aapke bare mei news sunke aise lag raha hai kaash yeh afwah hoti”, he said with tears in his eyes.
The comedian was working out in a gym in South Delhi where he suffered a heart attack. Reportedly, he was complaining of feeling uneasy when he was taken to the hospital. He had undergone an angioplasty the same day and was on a ventilator since that time.
